The Lyrics

With "return to monke" being one of the most popular memes of 2021 I was surprised to find that this particular title swap had not been done already.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
Return to monke
Return to monke

They have no meter maids or taxmen
They don't go nuts for crack
An opinion is forming
Let's grow our back hairs back

I've thought about it

Return to monke
Let's not postpone
Let's go ramble
With baboons

Won't need referrals
Or jaw like Kong's
We'll sign with Caesar
Cos his apes are together strong

Yeah, I might head out to the backwoods
Reject humanity
And while sitting here writing
A question comes to me

Yeah, where's banana?

Return to monke
Give up cologne
Musky business
Ape friend zone

One day the monkeys upon our backs
Will get too much out of hand
Then out of our shacks, together we'll stray
To the jungle lands

I'm sure about it

Return to monke
They don't have Zoom
But their women
Loves to groom

Return to monke
Return to monke
Return to monke
Return to monke

Two other popular text/picture-memes have been worked into this song (three if you count the longer version "reject humanity, return to monke" as a separate meme) - did you spot them?
